the president of the united states turned out to be a dlib fabrication because for sduecury reasons he made a trip under the veil of secrecy. this is standard operating procedure for presidents visiting america's various war zones. shortly after the 2008 election in which he was elected president, after the election but before the new president had been sworn in in december of 2008, then still president george w. bush took one of these surprise trips the, unannounced trips to background. it was december 14th, 2008. that's when this happened. >> yes. everybody calm down for a minute. first of all, thank you for apologizing on behalf of the iraqi people. it doesn't bother me. if you want the facts, it's a size 10 shoe that he threw. >> boy, if you were not surprised enough to find out that the president had surprise, gone to iraq, the president having a shoe hurled at him was definitely a surprise that day. when you look at the official transcript from this, we posted a link to it on our blog tonight. when you go through the transcript of this event, when you get to the part where the guy thr

united states senator, a former vice president of the united states, an experienced nationally known sober steady republican named richard nix on is running for president. he wins in 1968. he wins re-election in 1972. he never makes it to the end of the second term because of a little complication called watergate. in 1968 he was at the height of his appeal and he was a communist. see his campaign slogan, forward together. this is from the republican national committee archives. see the slogan at the bottom. bushy haired richard nixon communist. the reason you know that slogan indicates he's a communist because today's conservatives say so. i thought this was debunked already but conservatives even know, this is from last night on glenn beck's internet tv show, conservatives are still stuck on this. president obama's web video that came out ended with this slogan forward. the right just went nuts that the word forward was the obama campaign's way of signaling that it is marxist. it seems to impose the economic system by karl marx on america. that president obama is a communist, that
states. hispanic children are at the highest level of poverty in the history of the united states. i think the challenge is not how to bring them over to immigration reform or dialogue. just to make sure the latino community knows these facts and understands the failure of president obama. >> i agree with you there is a lot of ammunition. these comments about self deportation have indicated to some in the community he does not have respect for them. go to south texas and talk to latino ranch and farm owners and small businesses and members of the hispanic community. they are hard asses because they are the first to feel the adverse affect. cartels are shooting at them. are competing for jobs. there are a lot of reasons why they are hard asses but they do want to know the presidential candidate has respect for the community and in recognition this is not all a mexican problem. half the people here illegally came from hong kong the, nigeria on a visa and overstating it. the fact that all the people from central america are unworthy is a real problem. >> thank you. >> we will get behind
are consistent because the president believes al qaeda's leadership can be wiped out freeing the united states to focus on targeted strikes in places like yemen. >> it is a long war with requiring of a long-term commitment which is what the president signaled. >> as corruption continues inside karzai's government, and americans shell out $289 million a day there, the public is weary. the latest fox poll shows that 78 percent of registered voters approve of withdrawing u.s. troops. >> that's why republicans are urging the president to speak up about the war more, shore up support, and prepare the american people for tough difficulties ahead before last night, the president had not given a major speech on afghanistan in nearly a year. >>bret: thank you, ed, from the north lawn. stocks were mixed. the dow jones industrial average lost 11 and the s&p 500 lost 3 1/2. unemployment in the euro zone is now higher than it has ever been since the creation of the currency. spain is leading the way with a quarter of the workers not working. and now we have that story from madrid. >>greg: the prime ministe

on missile defense. "with the united states on a path to a hollow military" he writes, "we are hardly in a position to exercise leadership in persuading allies to spend more on security. the irresponsible defense cuts are clearing the way for our partners to do even less." still what is remarkable about the policy and afghanistan, republicans are giving the president plenty of room. they don't want to argue any other side to this argument about keeping troops there longer. this is a war that is not longer popular with the men public. the other summit with the european economy on the brain, the summit with the most domestic impact may have happened earlier this weekend when the leaders of the world's wealthiest economies met at camp david. the same debate about growth or austerity, spending or cuts will go farthest to spur economic recovery in the long term is being fought out in europe as well and the white house is happy with that they believe is a more unified message on their message from the western km economies after this weekend. >> as all the leaders here today agreed, growth a

the massacre in houla friday. the united states signaled it would continue down the diplomatic path to end the bloodshed in syria. but right now the violence is expected to continue. bill: . there is a warning if diplomacy fails the wider region could be drawn into a bigger war. >> reporter: in israel there is a concern about what might happen next. susan rice was talking to the united nations saying if the larger diplomatic push fails, the wider region could be pulled into the conflict. the iranian government says if the united states or other countries intervene militarily in syria, israel will be attacked. there is a concern about israel and iran in terms of the nuclear issue. there is a lot of concern in the middle east about what happens next. right now it is a diplomatic push by the united states and the diplomatic community and the u.n. this seems to be the on real option anybody is considering. right now military intervention is off the table for most of the international community, bill. martha: with that violence escalating by the day, we are getting more images of the civilians
the challenges with less risk of damage to the economies of the rest of the world and the united states. >> if breeze is forced out of the euro before they get to this wonderful package of slower austerity and more growth? is forced out of the euro? >> europe as a whole has a very strong incentive in doing what it's gone to take to make monetary union work. that's what the reforms over the last six months have tried to do. they tried to put in place a set of mechanisms for discipline in fiscal policy and cooperating on fiscal policy, for sharing as of resources, for managing the financial system that need to make monetary union work. i think their decisions, confronted with this fear of broad erosion in your experiment, is to redouble their commitment to try to make this thing work. if we believe they have the ability to do that. we hope they manage this process. very difficult set of intelligence. >> to learn anything from their experience or is it totally different? >> the talent is are different, but if you listen to where we started this conversation, what we're trying to do is make
a request to leave china. he said he wanted to go to the united states. he said he could like to leave with hillary clinton on her plane. she's there for high level meetings. as we reported last night he phoned into an emergency congressional hearing that was called to discuss his case. he reiterated in the phone call that he wanted help from secretary clinton. it's all very dramatic. last night when we left this story it was totally up in the air as to what would happen on this today. the clock is ticking. today there does seem to be progress toward a new deal that could get him out of china and to the united states in way that did not escalate this any further. apparently he's now been offered a fellowship at nyu's law school. china said they will consider his request to become a student or a visiting lecturer. the u.s. government say they expect the request to be expedited. this is happening in the shadow of hillary clinton being in china. he's expected to depart on saturday local time but beijing is 12 hours ahead of east coast. she will be leaving momentarily. she will be leaving
rates. so, the economy is moving and the united states is benefiting from problems in europe and china because we are seeing some monies flow back in the united states. that is all good, too, and the united states could be the prettiest horse in the glue factory but it is still a very sluggish economy and moving at a below par rate. consumers are the key. 70's percent of our economy they are. and if we did not see more savings where they have room to spend or we do not see incomes improving, they are just going to be tapped out that is a real no one. >> what about a catalyst for a shot in the arm for the economy, everyone is talking about the fiscal cliff that the bush tax cuts have to be extended. if congress can pull this off, will that alone give us a psychological lift and we will feel more comfortable spending money, taking longer trips and driving further? what do you think of that idea? >>guest: well, i am glad you brought that up because the federal reserve talks about when they keep the interest rates low they are trying to create wealth effect to get the stock market up, and
reverend wright had with the president of the united states since he took the oath of office? >> you know, they haven't had any. president obama was clear that mr. wright's views didn't reflect the president's views. this required moral leadership on mitt romney's part to stand up to the extreme voices in his party. once again, he didn't rise to the occasion. one of the things he tried to do today is equate this hateful attack with a simple discussion of governor romney's economic record we had in this campaign. we've seen this from romney before. he didn't stand up to one of the symbolic heads of the republican party, rush limbaugh when he made those hateful comments against sandra fluke. we've been clear whether supporter of the president or person that used this rhetoric, and romney didn't stand up. >> he said he repudiated this style of campaign. do you believe him? >> he was asked later in the day about his comments earlier in the year about reverend wright you played not too long ago. he said he stood behind them. time and time again, he had the opportunity to stand up to the extrem

other have worked together back in the 1990's?" maybe this is a complement to the united states. guest: cooperation between two countries is good. mill to mill relationships which we have lots of countries including countries that are not our closest friends, we used to have these relationships with pakistan and we stopped at our peril in our relationship with pakistan and that has declined as you are well aware relationships, especially like economic dialogue like hillary clinton and secretary of the treasury tim geithner had in beijing are very good things. what we should watch and a dangerous time his cooperative relationships where we will have competition like china and russia. that is what we should try to achieve. if we were doing and in the late 1990's, that is a good thing. host: this question is from twitter - guest: first of all, i don't call it the arabis spring. -- the arab spring. i called the arab awakening. the organizing events is the birth of the arab citizen. think about that. citizens of mellon fell other officials have not done well in egypt yes. it is an important
, will be revitalized and refocused on article v. the united states has f-16 training programs in poland and will retain a base in romania so there is just a few examples of the steps that we have taken as a nation as an alliance to reassure our eastern allies. there is more that can be done but i think those important first step so i've laid out these four problems in my argument is that at the summit and within nato, we are taking steps to deal with all of those problems. doesn't it doesn't mean they go away. but steps are taken to deal with them. >> thank you, madam. >> thank you all very much. i want to start dr. binnendijk with your comments amount missile defense and as mr. brzezinski mentioned earlier, this month we heard russia suggest that they might use preemptive force against missile installations if there is not a topic of agreement reached with nato. do you think this is just posturing? do you think there are -- this represents a heightened -- a heightened threat on the part of russia to oppose the missile defense installation or should we just expect more rhetoric and continue as you sugg
not understand why some people think that russia is the no. 1 adversary of the united states, we need russia and afghanistan. russia is helping us to resupply our forces in afghanistan. we have an interest in promoting counter-terrorism cooperation in russia. i was thinking that iran, right now the no. 1 national security issue of the united states is the iranian nuclear future. if you look at that constructs, russia is the most important country at the table for the united states. china will not be helpful. the european powers, of course, have a limited influence. if there is going to be an endgame on iran, where we convince them not to start -- not to stop short, they will have a lot to do with that solution. there will be a very close u.s.- russian interplay and cooperation on iran. meaning that the nato russian relationship is critically important. the promise of 10 years ago when we created the summit in italy, that promise has not been fulfilled. i would think a major order of business for the u.s. and germany is to bring back a good working relationship with the russian government. ve

, to permit highly educated foreign students to stay in the united states. and when you look at the numbers, it's just extraordinary that so many of these foreign students who are the real entrepreneurs of the future are forced to go back to their home countries. >> that's right. in the united states, we have a real challenge right now. we need to strengthen science, technology, engineering, and math education programs and opportunities for americans. but we are educating tens of thousands of non-u.s. nationals who are getting master's and doctoral degrees in these programs. there are tens of thousands of jobs that our most competitive, fastest growing companies can't fill and because of our current immigration laws, we've forced these highly educated folks to go home to the countries from which they came. we won't let them stay here, start jobs or take jobs, so in a bill, a bipartisan bill that senator warner of virginia, senator rubio of florida and i introtduced earlier this week, e make a number of important changes to support small business job growth. one is to create a new class of v
had to resign the presidency of the united states three years early in disgrace, narrowly avoiding being impeached and convicted and thrown out of office. frankly, he needed to make a little money, so he agreed for a large fee to sit down for a series of tv interviews, in which he basically wanted to talk about anything other than watergate. but he also wanted to defend himself on watergate. he wanted to try to shape his legacy, to be seen as something other than a disgraced cook who had had to resign his presidency. that effort to try to rehabilitate his image, to defend himself on watergate, led richard nixon to this iconic moment in the american presidency. >> well, when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal. >> richard nixon was trying to rehabilitate his image there. that did not help.
